My ‘Sesame Dressing’ is great for Chicken and green vegetable salad such as ‘Shungiku Chicken Salad’. It is a Japanese Mayonnaise and Soy Sauce base dressing. On the other day I thought that I should try a different flavour. Then I mix the Japanese mayonnaise with Worcestershire Sauce (Lea & Perrins). That was a good idea. The Worcestershire flavoured creamy dressing goes so well with Celery, that even my son, who hates celery, enjoys this salad.
